Stopover en route
A warm and friendly welcome to good clean accommodation.
Very handy for A34 and travelers for Portsmouth and Southampton. Would happily use again.
Room was really cosy and warm
The Carpenters Arms
Very comfortable and clean hotel.
Close to motorway links. Quite and the food was nice
I've stayed here a number of times and have always had an enjoyable stay.
The only thing I believe needs adding to make any stay better is by adding Wi-Fi. At present it is only available in the main building, that is the bar and restaurant, so nothing is available in the cottage where the rooms are situated. Checking e-mail or just browsing is therefore a bit of a pain as the Mobile Network coverage of 4g and 3g is a little bit hit and miss.
Home from home
Second time of staying here, and so much more relaxing than a corporate budget hotel, more like staying with friends who have a nice country cottage next door to the pub.
The new owner/landlord introduced himself when welcoming me and seemed to genuinely care that I had everything I needed.
Good value but not ideal for a quiet romantic time.
Good accommodation and very good food but very busy due to groups of guys placed there by their companies.
Also chat in the bar in the afternoon could be a bit coarse, not a problem for me although I am sure my wife might not appreciate it. All in all good value.
Like a home from home
This is not your corporate B&B.
It's a lovely cottage with winding stairs, wonky floors yet it's still comfortable, quiet and very relaxing to stay in. My room was spacious, well decorated and comfortable. I went for the "make your own breakfast" option which was fine: tea, coffee, cereal and toast and allowed me a quick getaway in the morning.

Accommodation is separate from the pub so quiet.
Breakfast is help yourself to items provided in kitchen which is a good idea for those wishing to leave early. Pub is in a lovely area and food was good (even for veggies like us). Wi-fi a bit hit and miss in the room but good in the pub. Plenty of parking right outside the accommodation block. Would definitely use again, Good value.
The evening meal was excellent - thoroughly enjoyable.
Breakfast was as advised but no as enjoyable!
What a good idea.
The room was more like self catering accommodation with fridge and sink.
What was very helpful was the cereals/pastries etc as I needed to get out early and was not able to stay for a cooked breakfast which didn't start until 9am. Only negative was the poor wi-fi reception in the room ( number 7 ) although that didn't detract from the good ambience of the pub. Food was excellent quality and ample proportions.
